Popsicles & Pinwheels

Happy Summer! We are enjoying over 30°C here and this week's challenge on "The Shabby Tea Room" was perfect for my mood! Here is my take on "Popsicles & Pinwheels":


Another card de-hoarding some paper - this time I used the Basic Grey "Lemonade" paper. Perfect for this challenge as it is required to use turquoise, hot pink and bright green! Love this cool turquoise.

I hope you are enjoying summer, too! Would love to know your favorite way to stay cool :)

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Diese Farben sind so toll und passen hervorragend zu der wunderschönen Karte.
Was ich mache, um mich abzukühlen? Nun, am liebsten hätte ich starken Wind, aber da wird den fast nie haben, liebe ich unseren Ventilator. :D Eine Wanne mit lauwarmen Wasser für die Füße hilft auch sehr gut. Die hat übrigens das gleiche Türkis, lach...


LG, Tina
